Skin care creams, essences/serums achieved a steady rate this year, but not enough to carry on it’s unprecedented past reputation.

On the other hand – Lifting  mask packs, hydration mask packs, overnight sleeping packs have gained an enormous popularity both in the korean and asian skincare market in 2010.

The BB Cream craze also also intensified this year with international brands such as Estee Lauder, Lancome, Clinique, MAC coming out with their own version of BB Creams ( Bobbi Brown’s BB Cream coming soon in Spring 2011 ).

In fact, BB Creams and Mask Packs came in overall in Number 1 and Number 2 for the best selling skincare items of 2010, trailed by Essences/Serums and Creams in No.3 and 4.

Creams and Essences/Serums , being items that consumers have adopted for centuries focuses on nutrition and hydration , but now these substances can be absorbed into the skin more rapidly with introduction of these ‘mask packs’, while leaving consumers with a light, refreshed feeling on their skin as opposed to the heavier feeling a cream gives. Mask packs are also suitable for all skin types, which increases it’s popularity. However, this trend is only observable in the Asian skincare market.

In 2010, the Korean skincare market has also seen the increase in numbers of Soothing gels, boosters ( which never really took off in terms of popularity in the Asian skincare market ).

A rare success was Etude House’ DR LASH AMPOULES, a pioneer in the niched cosmetics market, was bestowed as Etude House BEST SELLER of 2010. It is rare for a non-skincare product to grab the top notch, therefore the success of this eyelash serum will open up the market for Eyelash serums in 2011, therefore we will be expecting a rise in trend for Eyelash serums next year.


Makeup eyeliner and mascara has also proved to be hit items this year and has been incorporated into the mainstream cosmetics market because of it’s strong sales.

2010 also saw the introduction and increasing popularity of BB Cream Powder Pacts, and the trend is expected to increase in 2011.

2010 also saw a dramatic inscrease and demand of natural, organic skincare products which have finally caught up in Asia. Emerging korean brands such as Suiskin, Nature Republic, BRTC’s Dr MJ, LG’s Belif, are examples of these ‘new generation’ natural skincare brands. The increase of ‘ECOCERT-certified’ products have also been a highlight in the new wave of organic products.

Without further ado, the list of the top 5 best selling items of various korean skincare brands of 2010 :

    It is Christmas afternoon, and I am luxuriating in a box of Innisfree skin care products sent to me from Jeju. I have seldom found so fine a product anywhere. The body butter, pore cleansing, and deep cream are fully equal to Crabtree and Evelyn skin care creams. Subtly green tea scented, and moisturizing without being tacky or sticky.

    I will want more when I’ve used this up, they are that fine.

    the picture you put up for the face shop’s 명한 미인도 동환 line is incorrect ><; you put up the picture for the face shop's 명한 미인도 율 line ^^;

  4. Yuri Says:

    Btw, Lash ampoules, eh? I’d rather get something like Lashmantra instead. Regrows both eyelashes and eyebrows.

  5. Yuri Says:

    Well, all lash and eyebrow treatments I’ve tried are hit and miss anyways. =P

    They either work on you or they don’t. So the Etude one works on your eyebrow too, huh?

    I noticed the mistake between Sooryehan and The Face Shop. The Face Shop should be Mi-indo Yul. Sooryehan should be the Sanghwang mushroom line. They were mixed up.
